Along with every musical arena from hip hop to to country to pop and rock and roll, MLB, MMA, NBA, NFL, MLS and NHL superstars... far too many to list. Lauren has earned herself a loyal following due to her natural techniques, discerning eye, nurturing personality, and concern for each client's individual aesthetics. Her attention to detail has set her apart amongst the world’s top celebrity men’s groomers. Lauren is currently based in Los Angeles but works globally. She also recently launched her own healthy, vitamin-infused, cruelty-free, lip care line of glosses and mattes, including upcoming UNISEX nourishing lip balms with and without SPF 15 (that you’ll get to be the first to see and try it at Dub's competition!!).
We are extremely honored to have her this year on our panel of phenomenal judges. Stop by to say "hi" and check out her booth.
The incredible Mr. Richie the Barber
Inspired by a circus clown as a young lad, Richie always dreamed of becoming a real clown. Today, Richie is livin’ the dream my friends!! He combined his amazing talents as a barber (Bolt Barbers in LA) with his lifelong clown interest to show people that they can be who they want to be and “dreams can become reality!” Since then, Richie has made appearances on Adult Swim, Shane and Friends, and more! Check out his audition video for America’s Got Talent! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sAd2nez35HI
The incredibly talented Dan Palmer
Lead guitarist both of Death By Stereo and Zebrahead.
Hailing from England, he is known for his prodigious guitar licks and his prestigious mustache, from which he draws his power. He is stuck with growing the mustache, which has been for more than 6 years. Dan is also a part time guitar teacher – and who would not want to learn from this amazingness right here?? Check out Dan shredding the new Motörhead Ace of Spades ASG!!
